I’m one of them girls that can have any size handbag, but will still insist to try and squeeze everything and anything inside.
I will have items that I won’t even use throughout the whole day, in fact things that I never actually use at all.
It’s like when you have a big(ish) bag that is feeling a little empty, I’ll just throw things in to make it seem more full. Anyone else do this? Lol.
I mean you have items like your card holder, car keys and all that rubbish to go in your bag – but it’s all about the actual important stuff that comes under my hand bag essentials.
Listen up –
The Benefit Travel Palette | Ok, this can only work with a big handbag – however if it can fit, it comes with me. I have no fricking idea why it has taken me until this date to actually try out Hoola, Coralista, Dandelion and Rockateur. LIKE NO IDEA. These – I cannot get enough of. Hoola is the perfect bronzed shade for my skin tone and I am loving Rockateur for more of a deep/subtle blush. Also the fact with this palette you get the They’re Real mascara which is a favourite of mine, however the liner – I just cannot get to terms with. It’s a no from me. But this palette is so worth purchasing. You can pick this up in World Duty Free. (I got this on the plane back from Gran Canaria, they also do a Hoola set which is gorgeous too!)
Fluffy Make Up Brush | Whether this is for applying bronzer or powder. It’s a must have. There is nothing better than being on a night out with some friends, and being able to touch up your make up. Trust me. When I’m out with my friends I think I’m the next Beyonce and from all the dancing I just look like a red tomato – so this is to help me not look like all the blood has rushed to my head. Plus, we have to control our skin from having any sweat outs when on the go, because the tube can seriously make us sweat when running for our trains.
Perfume | There is nothing better than having a perfume/body spray in your handbag for a little touch up. It can be so refreshing when you’re all hot and flustered. I always ALWAYS carry one around with me. Body Sprays are more of an option than perfumes as they’re less expensive, but this little one fits perfectly into any size handbag.
Pixi Glow Mist | We’ve gotta keep our skin popping and glowing, right? Am I sweating? No hun, that’s my Pixi Glow Mist just popping. Lol. I am loving this mist at the moment, it gives your skin a nice healthy glow and keeps that make up in place. We don’t want none of that sliding down your face. It’s also again – refreshing to have a little spray top-up on a mad day/night.
Lip Liquid/Lipstick | Of course, we cannot go out the house without the lipstick you’re wearing. I mean, it would be fabulous if there was a lip product out there that would last over 10 hours without re-apylying. But let’s be honest – there’s not. I find a nude lip is always a good idea on long days. I totally adore this CT liquid at the moment, they last for around 3-4 hours with eating pancakes and drinking plenty of tea. So easy to re-apply, and it’s like your not wearing anything on your lips! It’s a gorgeous shade too – Best Actress.
Compact/Mirror | Of course the mirror. We always need a mirror. Forget about the iPhone front camera, mines pants. You know why we need a mirror, I don’t need to explain it to ya.
